Nonprofit Organizations + B2B SaaS Unite in Indianapolis

The following post regarding our Nonprofit + Tech Meetup Group is contributed by Boardable’s VP of Client Success, Julie Heath.

Thanks to a generous introduction from Una Osili, I recently met another east coast-to-Indy transplant couple who work in the nonprofit space. As we compared notes of CT, NY, DC, PA, MA, and CA, we discussed what a business strategist might call competitive advantage of the cities we’ve inhabited.

  • Boston and New Haven: academic braintrusts
  • DC and NYC: decision-making epicenters
  • Philly: cultural & creative economies accelerated by ecosystems like CultureWorks/Trust and devotion to history
  • Oakland: bike-363-days-per-year-weather. (There is always one hot day and one cold day that fall outside the standard deviation.)

The surprise (for me) Venn diagram of Indy, which I propose is a competitive advantage, is the overlap of density in:

  1. Nonprofits
  2. B2B SaaS Startups
  3. Volunteer Culture
  4. Academic Leadership in Philanthropy

During the past few months, I have had the pleasure to work with a brilliant product manager here at Boardable, Krista Martin, who shares fascination of exploring this space where tech startups intersect nonprofit needs. We are hypothesizing that there are others locally who spend time thinking about this. Care to join us and talk shop?

If so, please have a look at our Eventbrite listing of a new Meet-Up group we’ve formed here in Indianapolis, called “Nonprofit + Tech.”

Nonprofit + Tech’s Mission:

Indianapolis is a city that is rich in both nonprofits and technology organizations. NonProfit + Tech is looking to gather a group of forward thinking leaders in one or both of these disciplines. We recognize the importance of this conversation and want to continue to strive for better tech for nonprofits here in Indianapolis.
